Hi down from Canada and been riding and getting lost but enjoying the killer trails so far.

Any locals around that want to show us around on any of these days ? We are staying in Front royal and don't mind driving a bit if needed.

I have room for 1 more bike on the rack as well.

Pm me if your interested. We typically ride xc type trails but don't mind anything. We have ridden Quantico and Elizabeth Furnace and Shenandoah state park ( pretty easy trail system )

Thx

Which parts of EF did you ride? The full figure-8? Depending on your tolerance for hike-a-bike, there's tons of ridge trail in the area (but lots is hiking trail and a bit chunky for bikes).

There's Catherine Furnace a bit further south (just past Luray).

Or, if you're willing to drive an hour or so, all the trails near Stokesville.

I got a route from jake at the bike shack so I’m not super sure if we did the figure 8 of hate ? It was VERY tech in places and we did have to hike a bike a bunch but still fun. Hoping to find stuff that is long flowy trails that don’t require too much navigational stops.

We picked up a map and the volume of trails is overwhelming don’t know what to do. Not a bad problem to have. You guys have a sweet set up down here for sure.

Here's one of my favorite ridge rides down there

If you haven't ridden the gnarly fins of Buzzard Rock, that's another must do. Small version

Big version https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22126193

To the west of Elizabeth Furnace, on the other side of i-81 is the highly recommended Great North Mountain area (Wolf Gap/Big Schloss). If you've got the National Geographic map of the area you'll have it on there. You could slice and dice from this route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28162968
